In order to select the right type and size of the filter, it is often recommended to perform filtration tests for new applications. The main goal of these filtration tests is to determine the optimal filter media and filtration process conditions. Two filtration tests results Sulphurnet recently visited a plant in Chili where such a...

How Sulphur Flour slowly destroys your sulphur plant Sublimed sulphur is invisible for the eye and causes serious corrosion. Sulphur is a pH neutral product, but under the right conditions and when the sulphur is in contact with air and water, bacterias can cause the formation of sulphuric acid: The pH can decrease drastically. During...

The development in the sulfuric acid industry is going towards less maintenance stops, preferably running for 28-36 months. Screening of the expensive catalyst is one important reason for stopping the acid plant. The various types of catalyst will give different pressure drop due to the size and shape of the catalyst. But the presence of...

Vertical Leaf Filter Sulphurnet
Process optimization with self-cleaning candle filters. A producer of herbicides was investigating a plant optimization in which filtration played an important role. The process included a continuous reactor and the products were filters on a belt filter to recover the product, which was a solid end product. The mother liquor was recirculated back into the...

Sulphur Melting Tank Sulphurnet
Ashes entering the converter interferes with the formation of SO3. In a sulphur burning plant, sulphur filters usually catch the blame. A “polishing filter” can solve this problem. However, in numerous inspections of sulphur melting plants, Sulphurnet has discovered that it is not the filtration that is causing the problem. Process design and operation procedures...

Main filtration cake from ideal pre-coat Now that we understand the 3 main possible outcomes of the pre-coat layer, we must understand these are the worst and best possible scenarios, these possibilities are in a line from low flowrate to high flowrate. This means that you can find any deviation in along this line, knowing...

Pressure Leaf Filter Sulphurnet
How the filtration flow rate affects the filter internals and what happens to the particles in the different scenarios? Believe it or not, the flow rate, especially in the pressure leaf filter, is a very critical point. Flow rate control must be continuously improved along the rest of the filtration system. The filter cake, the pump...

Many sulfur burning plants are plagued by high ash content levels, and then contamination of the waste heat boiler and catalyst bed in the converter of the acid plant. The answer to this problem is the installation of a liquid sulphur polishing filter after the pressure leaf filter. The liquid sulphur polishing filter with ceramic elements will drastically...
